to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david corn and ryan grim at "the huffington post" posted video of romney talking to wealthy donors in florida. deriding the 47% of the country that he said did not pay federal income taxes and who were dependent on the government and victims and who he would never be able to reach because he would not be able to purr suede them to take responsibility for their lives. >> i'll never convince 47% of the country to take personal responsibility and care for their lives. those comments he describes his disdain for half the country, those comments have had a measurable impact on the campaign. in the new poll just released in the last couple hours, people say those remarks from mr. romney made them feel more negative than positive toward mr. romney by a 22-point margin. those results match other polling that shows those comments alienated undecided voters. regardless of what you think of the substance of that it statement from mr. romney, it did turn the whole republican pundit class against him, called every candidate in a contested race to distance the
huffington post." thanks for being here. >> great to be here, rev. >> nia, i've been around politics since i was a teenager, i've never seen anything that bad where the nominee had to stop the crowd and put his name out front. i mean, this is a little crazy, don't you think? >> and you've seen this before. you've seen people, you know, sort of tripping up on romney's name, calling him mitt romney. you've seen him on "60 minutes" rep minding that he's the one on the ticket running for president. ryan has energized this ticket. barack conservatives on board. now you have conservatives saying, unleash ryan and have him talk more about policy and his plans for the future of the country. but it has been a bit of a sticky situation. the aides i've talked to around romney say they have a great relationship, they talk several times a day. but in reality ryan does have a different set of advisers around him, a different set of speechwriters. i think everyone at this point is waiting to see if ryan, in fablt, goes rogue at some point. does he move to save his brand, which, of course, was this young gu
.com and sam stein, political reporter for "the huffington post." great to have both of you with us. keli, you first. how offensive is this? how damaging is it? is it something claire mccaskill has to respond to? >> well, i'd say on a scale of 1 to 10, we're heading into, like, 20 territory, ed. i think at a certain point this actually makes me wonder what must a republican candidate or any candidate do to not get support? right? like, i think at this point we have to start having a competition just to see where the lines of offensiveness, how far we can push these boundaries. apparently making rape jokes doesn't do it, making misogynistic comments doesn't do it. maybe somebody has to drop the "n" bomb, but with rick per re and the rock thing. >> sam, how does he overcome this? >> i don't think he does. todd akin should have a rule he shouldn't speak about women or women's issues because it causes him more problems than it's worth. obviously missouri is a conservative state, or trending conservative. it's not going to vote for president obama like it did. claire mccaskill has always been in a
shocking. they recognized that it was a really funny movie. >> the huffington post with what's fueling the rise of raunch. >> half the population is women. they want to see it reflected in movies. >> i think bridesmaids rated r was such a huge hit because people are looking to get out there and show them what you got. >> have any champagne and ice cream in our suite and then we're going to party, right? >> rebel wilson, one of the breakout stars of "bridesmaids," also starring in exhibit c "bachelorette." starring isla fisher. and kirsten dunst. not just films that is seeing a rise in raunch, take a look at hbo's "girls." >> i have an std. >> we were with the creator on the emmy red carpet where the show was up for five awards. >> i wouldn't be able to do what i do on network. it would be completely impossible. >> this party really over? i was just getting started. >> it's very brave for lena dunham to be making a show like this because there are so many women out there, my life isn't like on "sex in the city." >> i'm so happy for lena because she's the brains and the soul of this whol
